Specialist areas include assurance, privacy, investment, architecture and digital service design and integrated digital services.

The Manager Agency Partnerships is part of the Agency Partnerships and Capability business group leadership team, which is one of four new groups established within the branch.

To be successful in this role you will have:

  • proven experience leading a consulting service or in a service delivery management role
  • experience managing complex and diverse client/stakeholder relationships and expectations
  • strong planning and organisational skills to effectively resource a dynamic work programme, and understand connections across the Branch and wider system
